HV30 & FlowPod- Need weights up top?

I'm thinking about getting the FlowPod for sale as we're shooting a short & the handheld shots we got w/ the HV30 were lacking. After asking, I was told that I would need to add weights to the top of the flowpod near the camera. Is there a kit somewhere for that? Can this be achieved by simply adding an external mic/video light to the camera?

Thanks for your time.

Will

The Flowpod is overkill with an HV30 - way too much "rig", not nearly enough cam to be effective... Better to consider a Merlin or other smaller stabilizer.
